The day started beautifully. The hotel pool and dining area looked so calm.
Then a quick drive to Nidri to a pre ferry drink and then all aboard the 12-15 to Vathi, the main port on Meganisi.
The crossing only takes 35 minutes and we were soon at our destination, we had been told that the ferry back left at 17-30. However, a chap was handing out times as we manoeuvred the car aboard. We starred in disbelief as it said the return was either 14-30, giving no time for a leisurely lunch and swim at all. Or 19-30 meaning a drive back to the hotel in the dark. We then noticed the date above the times was 10th of September. We queried this time with the man taking the tickets. “No five thirty madam.” We handed him the piece of paper his colleague had just handed us. “No, no madam, we return at five thirty.” He screwed the piece of paper up and put in the litter bin. Very, very Greek: don’t you just love it?
The harbour was incredibly full of fish.
Mary had time for a snorkel in one of our favourite bays. A wander round a little village where we stayed nearby twice before. And then back to Lefkada on the five thirty. Anyone who took that piece of paper at face value and waited for the 19-30 would have faced a pleasant overnight stay on Meganisi!
This is the beach where Mary swam. The bag enjoyed its little break.
And yes finally as promised: the car.
Another great meal downtown and a free liqueur of some sort at the end that even the waiter didn’t know the name of. A bit of a worry. Take care,lots of hugs M & M.
